Not far from its original battle site in East Feliciana Parish, the 25th annual Battle of Jackson Crossroads Civil War re-enactment took place April 23-24.

The Living History Association of Jackson works to make the event as historically accurate as possible, a news release said. Each year, spectators come from around the region and out of state to visit campsites for cavalry demonstrations, unit inspections and drill competitions, as well as Sutlers Row, which featured period military clothing, leather goods, vintage flags, authentic reproductions of muskets, knives and other weaponry from the era.
